Hadrian's Wall Path

Immerse yourself in history and walk the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail. This is a fascinating and rewarding walk from coast to coast alongside one of Britain’s Iconic landmarks. Hadrian’s Wall is Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Opened in 2003 the Hadrian’s Wall Path follows the course of the Roman barrier closely along the entire length and is one of Britain’s most popular long distance walks. The Hadrian’s Wall Path starts in the vibrant city of Newcastle and takes you through the landscapes of Northumberland and then on to Cumbria, finishing at the mouth of the River Solway amidst the outstanding natural beauty of the Solway Firth. You will be constantly amazed by the ingenuity and determination of the Romans in their quest to control this far-flung corner of their vast empire. The wall is punctuated by regular forts, milecastles and turrets as well as museums and visitor centres to assist you in your journey of discovery. Not forgetting of course that you will be walking through some of the wildest and most beautiful scenery that England has to offer.
